The bootlog is a hidden file that is created at the root directory. I believe it is called "bootlog.txt" You just have to run attrib bootlog.txt /-h to make it viewable.

Oh, and if you have win 2000, msconfig does not exist. You can steal a copy from a Win XP box and use it, but it will give errors while starting.
